Lower Temps Using ARCTIC COOLING F7 Via Ruber Band mod - Page 3

post #21 of 64
This actually works. It balances the heatsink onto the cpu VS it just leaning to one side and neglecting the other.

The top one on the left would be pulling the HS away from the mobo if anything.

Go back to the drawing board my friend.

I call Bs on you Thes Are the Little black rubber bands They Have a 1 pound breaking point (Fully stretched). So if you figure in that these are not fully steched and the real long one is 3 bands into one, They are pulling a 1/4 each or more, So that about equals pound of downwrds pressure towards the mb And not straight down

Replace the push pins and if you MOBO don't have a good backing plate behind the CPU think about getting one of those to!!

It is lapped Perfelty flat in polished

One pound of downward pressure is nothing. How much weight did it take to press those push pins in? MUCH MUCH MUCH more than a pound.

Also, the way you have those arranged they are doing more work of trying to pull the HS apart instead of pulling it towards the motherboard.

Odd.

My Arctic is lapped, along with my CPU, and I have a 120mm ziptied onto the cooler which is connected to the rear exhaust fan.

Seems to work better than the rubber band. I was never a fan of the stock fan that comes with.

Idle temps 21C. Were 23C before I had an Antec 900

Whats Your Load temps and Room Temp?? That is really low Even with a 120mm Fan

Your temps are pretty much room temp 72f So Either you room is really cold, Your Therm. is off, You have not updated your Specs or you stretching the truth ??

Lets be serious You have oc your cpu from 1.6 to 3.20 but you have oc more than me about 100% oc you have and i only have an 52% oc I just can not believe those temps

To be honest, I don't know why my temps are how they are now. Before lapping it, my temps were 33-35C at idle.

I currently have my AC off, and my ceiling fan is the only air flowing through my room. It is currently quite cold outside, but it has never gone above 25C even when it was 80 outside.

I currenly have all my Antec fans on Medium, and the fan I have on the cooler runs at like less than 1500RPM.

It's odd, but I love it lol.





And I live in Texas, so come on, even the coolest day isn't even cool!

I would highly consider trying to lap the cooler, it doesn't have to be mirror finished, just flatter.

Mine was not flat at all and had a lot of bumps.

I'd also try putting a better fan on there, as the one at stock is awful to me.


Oh, and my load temps don't go above 51C.
